In less than 10 days our family will be boarding a plane headed for Australia, with a 5 day stop in Japan.
I have so much to think about, my mind is overloaded. I keep forgetting simple things, like my credit card at Red Robin last night and my 40% off coupon for Christopher and Banks.
This week I need to go through all of our clothing and see if I can get everything into three large suitcases and 4 carry-ons. Thankfully my son has grown and is going onto the next size so I will be able to get rid of some things, the bad news to that is I already purchased the next size for him but its on a boat headed to Australia as I write this.
Next week I will need to call our phone company, cell phone company, car insurance, health insurance, and others I'm sure I'm forgetting to cancel everything. I also need to clean our almost empty home. Anyone want to come help clean?! My husband asked of facebook if anyone wanted to come help him finish up so projects, he said he pays in pizza and hugs. I can do the same.
Quick question for you all. Any great plane traveling tips for children you can offer? I plan to buy them each some new things to do on the plane, but I'm sure we'll run out of ideas. We fly from Harrisburg on November 17th to Detroit, from Detroit to Nagoya, Japan where we will stay 5 days. Then fly from Nagoya, Japan on November 22nd to Tokoyo, Japan to Cairns, Australia, to Darwin, Australia on November 23rd where we will probably collapse.
We also had a huge blessing the other day. Our first full day in Australia will be November 24th, Thanksgiving. In Australia we have heard that a 15lb turkey could cost around $80! I was kind of bummed that we may not have the traditional Thanksgiving meal, but I was okay with that. Sunday night our missionary friend sent us an email and said that a man in the church offered to buy a turkey, if he was invited to Thanksgiving dinner! How great is our God that He gives us the desires of our heart before we even think to come ask Him!
